2017 sees us host the 8th YFIFF!!
The Yellow Fever Indie Film Festival is run by film makers, for film makers. Created by George Clarke (of Yellow Fever Productions) in 2009, the festival has went from strength to strength pulling in a host of amazing world wide film makers and industry names such as the prolific Albert Pyun (Cyborg, Captain America, Road To Hell) and Mike Leeder (Fearless, Rush Hour 3, Man Of Tai Chi).
The festival prides itself in finding and promoting new talent of the independent film world, housed in the popular Movie House Cinema in Belfast City Centre (Northern Ireland).
The YFIFF now focuses STRICTLY on genre films that hail the Action (or) Horror (or) Thriller theme.
A weekend of madness and fun is always guaranteed, closing with our big black tie, gala dinner award ceremony on the Sunday evening, a lot of happy people, and plenty of smiles and great memories!
We look forward to meeting you and sharing your film to the people of Norn' Iron!!

*IMPORTANT YFIFF NEWS*
With recent struggles in mind, we have taken the difficult decision to carry both the upcoming 8th & 9th YFIFF events as ONLINE festivals only.
This means we will not be holding any physical festivals for the next 2 years, to allow us to work on an amazing relaunch for the 10th (in 2019) and lift ourselves out of the current situation in regards to lack of sponsors, funding and other issues. In regards to your festival submissions - we will still be screening all selected films to our usual range of judges, allowing for fair judgement of your work resulting in a filmed announcement of the winners (via a video here on the YFIFF site).
We hope you can support our decision in doing what we need to before the hole gets any deeper. As always, the YFIFF was created by film makers for film makers and we look forward to seeing your work as well as making new friends!
Good luck & many thanks,
George Clarke, Kenny Martin & the YFIFF team
